Last Night

See this cute little kitten?  This cute little thing sleeping soundly and sweetly on my desk and under the lamp light?  Well, she's exhausted because she was up all night being naughty.

Normally, Charlene and Wylla have a spurt of energy shortly before midnight, run a few laps together, then settle in for the night.  We usually don't hear a peep from the girls until they get hungry in the morning.

 But last night, Wylla woke us all up around 2:00 and kept us up for what seemed like hours by pouncing on our feet, nibbling on toes, tossing her rattly mouse, climbing on the table, knocking things off the table, chewing on things she knocked off the table, walking across our heads, and racing back and forth and up and down the stairs.  She tried to involve Charlene in her activities, but Bean had no interest in budging form the bed.

Of course I'm happy she's feeling so good and full of energy, I'm just hoping she choses to burn it off during daylight hours.

  1. Darn, she'll have to give up that evening coffee.

  2. You may have to start playing with her before bedtime.

    1. We also play with our Louie for at least an hour every night before bed (usually more), and most nights he goes to bed at 11 with us and is content until about 6. The other night he was up ALL NIGHT!! I woke up to some many toys in my bed that he had brought me. HAHA!

    1. My thoughts exactly! She's innocent, I tell ya! That little angel could never be naughty! Never! :-)

  4. I will be happy to send a couple of mine over to play with her all night. Thomas & Luke love a good game of "Last Call Tag" around 2 am.

  5. Naughty Wylla! Maybe you should wake her up repeatedly to give her a taste of her own medicine.

    Or try getting Wylla a treadmill like City the Kitty has:

  6. Both my kitties do this! I sympathize

  7. Last night, in my "neck of the woods" it was a very bright full moon (more like search light bright) -- Wylla probably thought it was time to get up and enjoy an early morning romp of fun and games.

  8. Oh my. What a little dickens! (Which happens to be one of LG's nicknames). :-)

  9. It's her age. She's now a teenager and chomping at the bit to get into trouble. Speaking from experience, you should guard your toilet paper and tissue boxes!

  10. Exhausting for you, but I can't help being thrilled that your girl is feeling so chipper!

  11. Jan is so right- those teenage cat years are - well, almost as irritating as humans. India still can't keep it together without trying to get Zou into trouble. Chirping, trilling, jumping on the headboard, flying down the stairs, howling- then during the day she is a fur brick in front of the fire. You have my total sympathy.

  12. With her being a sweet napper like that, it must be awfully hard to hold a grudge for the late night antics. Maybe it was all the result of a growth spurt egging her on to that 5 pound goal!?!

    1. *googles*

      Ah. Explained. (Charlene apparently carries enough celestial weight that she can tell the moon to bug off, haha.)

  14. 2:00 am is PRIME time to chase aliens, ghosties, wee ratty meecers and anything else that goes bump in the night. Sleep is for babies! Pshaw!

  15. Surely that sweet, innocent little face could not be attached to a kitty who was so naughty! Or, on second thought, maybe it could, since what is naughty to a human is, unfortunately, of no consequence whatsoever to kitties! May I suggest a closed bedroom door until Wylla outgrows this phase?

    1. Good idea but then Laurie, Craig and Bean would probably have to listen to the mournful sound of Wylla "singing the song of her people," (that's what my sister calls it when my cat serenades me at night) which may just be worse than pounced-on toes... I'm just guessing though...

  16. I hope you kept her awake during naptime this afternoon the same way.

    1. I agree: I used to keep one of my kittens awake during the day so she wouldn't torture us at night.

  17. That's one tired kitty!!! I hope you managed to get some day-time rest

  18. My cats were naughty last night too! Must have been something going on in the universe!

  19. May I suggest the employment of a red dot laser?? We have a naughty 3 mo. old kitten and we exercise her an hour before bedtime with the laser.....

  20. I do believe it was the moon last night too! It was bright until it set, causing my soon to be four year old kitties to have a wrestling match on me at 4am!

  21. Oh yes, cats, the low maintenance pet. I fostered a teenage kitty once. Named her thunder paws after a few nights of her racing on the hardwood floors. These days, I cite allergies and think of orchids. My current apartment isn't big enough for a roommate.

  22. Actually, this made me smile and I thought, "How sweet!". Yes, my little ones have done this to me... but...oh well.

  23. I also think it's the moonlight-- so bright on the snow I keep thinking it's morning. That, + maybe the onset of main mating season-- feral toms are showing up outdoors to serenade our little queen (emeritus), who may have enough of instinct left that it's fueling some of this. Both boys slept soundly all night, even the (congenitally squirrely!) rescue hybrid guy...But Aegir (another moon of Saturn, LOL) had a late spaying at NQ 3, (another rescue; they all are) so maybe she's unusual. Still, onset of main mating season could be a factor, if only due to the increased activity out there at night for our kitties to race around and posture at, scold, etc.

  24. Those pictures are so sweet! But oh boy, do I ever sympathize with your nighttime suffering. Melly is four and she still goes on nighttime rampages.
